"Deep brick in color, this wine has an abundance of glorious scents to offer. Starting with a woodsy nose of redwood floor and light cigar tobacco, the fruit follows with cherry and pomegranate showing through. The palate delights immediately with dense black cherry and a silky mouthfeel. Tarte pomegranate then comes forward, along with tobacco leaf, and a light sprinkling of anise. Strong, deep tannins compliment the generous flavors to elongate the lasting finish. Pair with crispy duck breast and roasted brussels sprouts."
